Before the TV series “Haven” which is based on Stephen King’s book, The Colorado Kid, there was a little known graphic novel released by the UK’s Markosia simply titled, HAVEN.
Being based on Dante’s Inferno, this story is very different.
Synopsis: The Dante family line has been in the fires of an ancient war between humanity and the nine circles of hell for generations. As a self-proclaimed “Aristocracy” the circles have now set their sights on the one chosen to fight the raging war … Haven Irena Dante. But soon after the tragic death of her mother, Haven endures the vile theft of her innocence and disappears. No one has seen or heard from her in two years … until now.
Somehow she has been changed. And when all nine circles of hell conspire to recreate their realm on the surface there is no one that can stop them. No one, that is, except Haven.
Steeped rich in history, Haven races at the speed of thought into the realms of action and adventure with fantasy and horror while seizing the places where pain can fuel staggering powers and generational wars are fought to the death.
The author and the publisher have parted ways on this project but are still the best of friends.
“Please know that I consider Harry to be one of my closest allies and that just because we have terminated this agreement does not in any way terminate our friendship which will gladly continue.
I keep a file folder of every rejection that I’ve ever received from an agent and/or publisher and at the end of that folder is my contract with Markosia. I do this so that I can convey to my daughter that she should never give up on her dreams. It was my dream to be published traditionally and Harry helped fulfill that dream and for that I am forever grateful.”
Folks can still read a much deeper story with the prose version of the graphic novel titled, HAVEN OF DANTE including details of where the main character was during the missing years.
